i think the color is odd because that photo was taken with my bb camera.

it is a frozen stream in the woods . . . tonight it's something like 25°F and snowing a bit.

i'm not sure. a friend of mine from high school has a pair he bought a few years back. his posts are way back though.. .

it may be the weird sizing that puts people off from buying somét or lack of product and advertisement outside of japan.

i've only seen somét sold on two sites. context clothing and BiG.

both stores do not stock often from my observation.

another cool thing i've noticed is my tanner belt buckle must constantly be rubbing against the top button on the fly because it is all scratchy and shinny.

hey flipcrack..

well if i'm not wrong, the darts are meant to reduce any knee sag.

If u look at some jeans without darts, u may notice the knee area bulging out after some time due to stretching.. and tt makes it kinda ugly to look at.

Also the darts help to keep the overall silhouette of the jeans slim and tapered.

I personally really like the darts because its just different from many other jeans. When u first buy them, u wont notice the darts. But after constant wearing and fading, the darts will appear nicely as shown by my pic above.

haha love how u call them "phantom whiskers" LOL

danks doods.

i do keep a lighter in the coin pocket of my jeans.

it is not a zippo but a vintage crown musical cigarette lighter.

ipso facto it plays music when you light up . . .

i thought it was kinda cool.

ok guys.. here are the pics.

apologies for the huge file size.

IMG_1836.jpg

threw em in the washing machine for a spin.

IMG_1876.jpg

took em out to sun.

word of advise, the waist shrank back to its painful tiny self. so i would recommend stretching them or wearing them while they are wet so as to retain the size you like.

IMG_1889.jpg

pic of the back. pity cant really see the left side of the jeans. i placed a thick coin there and theres a tiny coin fade going on.

some closeup pics now:

IMG_1881.jpg

some slub peeeking out! yay!! always wanted slub.

IMG_1878.jpg

IMG_1887.jpg

the wallet fade =)

IMG_1884.jpg

some whiskering near the pocket.

as a whole i really love the new post-wash texture i get.

now its time for stretching and trashing round 2.

let me know what u guys think on the evo!

cheers and happy new year!
